- Koor wines are a traditional blend of indigenous Armenian varietals, grown primarily in high-elevation vineyards of Vayots Dzor, Armenia. The name Koor - is a tribute to Armenian riverboat craftsmanship and wine merchantry.
BackgroundThe illustration on the label shows the scene from Herodotus' book "Histories" (Chapter 194). Armenian merchants used to travel from Armenia to Babylon down the river Euphrates in boats made of wood and animal hides, with casks of palm-wood filled with wine and a few donkeys. In Babylon they would sell the wine, the wood, roll the animal skins, mount them on donkeys and head back to Armenia along the banks of the river.
The signature and subtle mineralic notes come from the unique soil of the region which is a combination of volcanic sediment and limestone.
